Naomi Campbell has been pretty lucky when it comes to allegations of mistreatment by her staff. She just settled the eighth such case out of court, paying her former Slovakian housekeeper Ivana Lovas thousands of pounds. This way, she avoids what could have been quite an embarrassing public hearing. Lovas said Campbell racially and sexually discriminated against her and didn't even pay her. The Mirror reports:
It had been alleged that when Ivana threatened to leave her job, Campbell screamed: "You can't afford to leave me. You're married and you've got a kid. I'll sue you if you do."
…Mrs. Lovas claimed she constantly criticised the way she spoke, telling her: "You don't even speak English."
But here's the really twisted part of the story: Lovas's husband, Gabriel, got her the job. He's a celebrity photographer who got to know Campbell on private boats in Saint-Tropez. Apparently homeboy chose to ignore the seven previous allegations of abuse by her staff, quite often with airborne BlackBerrys. We don't know much about love, but we do know that ain't it.
Considering Lovas also signed a gagging order, we feel like she should've squeezed a bit more cash out of Campbell, what with no book or tabloid deals in the works. We wonder if Campbell will get off so easily when her British Airways trial starts. Maybe being so hot works more wonders than we thought.
